jeff healey

Sad news today – guitarist Jeff Healey died at age 41. He was an impressive songwriter and musician, more impressive due to the fact that he was blind, and played his guitar across his lap. I saw a show of his in Glasgow probably over 10 years ago – it was a lot of fun. I remember at one point he got carried away in a blues jam, he jumped up and started bopping around on the stage while playing his guitar. You got the feeling that this was something he regularly did, but even so his band seemed to be keeping close watch that he wouldn’t hurtle off the front of the stage.

    That is sad, I was just listening to him (on cassette tape, I am old!) this weekend. I saw him in Glasgow too, he was a wonderful performer.
